What’s one idea from the message that stood out to you? Why do you think it grabbed you?
In what ways have your parents shaped your view of God?
How can you both love and fear God? Where do you fall on the scale between “All powerful being to be feared” and “buddy Jesus”?
Read: 1 John 5:1-5
Why is keeping God’s commandments a sign that we love Him?
What would a relationship look like if you liked the adults but hated their children, talked badly about the children, or mistreated them?
What helps you or hinders you from seeing others as your siblings and recognizing them to be children of God?
John says that every child of God overcomes the world. Do you feel like you’re overcoming the world? Why or why not?
Do you face your struggles alone or with faith? Why?
What does it mean to overcome struggles by faith?
Prayer: Pray that you will love your siblings and obey God’s commands.
